The more volunteers who participate in the survey listing the better the chances of their community winning the one day training session. The workshop/planning day will be customized to meet the needs of the community. The community may choose to offer to their volunteers a workshop on topics such as volunteer recruitment , local fund raising development, coach training, first aid, community planning or on athlete leadership, you name it and we will create it…
